Call for Abstracts

The Call for Abstracts for the Issues of Substance 2017 is now closed.
Thank you to all who sent in a submission.


For the first time, CCSA is launching a call for late-breaking abstracts for the Issues of Substance (IOS) 2017 conference. IOS is a premier learning event for the addiction field. This call has been introduced to ensure IOS will feature current, novel and leading-edge evidence.

We are seeking presentations ten minutes in length that centre on current or novel findings that have never been published or presented previously and for which no preliminary data was available when the general call for abstracts closed on February 3, 2017.

Individuals and organizations from disciplines associated with substance use and addiction, public health and gambling are encouraged to submit.

Submissions will be accepted from 9:00 a.m. EDT July 31, 2017, until 11:59 p.m. EDT on August 28, 2017.
